Viewers have asked me how long it takes me to make a quilt. I can never answer that question as there are always so many variables but I do have a general idea. So when making this turkey I decided to pay attention to the time factor. He took me most of the afternoon...5 hours to construct and I was not happy with him. So got up this morning and worked 2 more hours on him. Then 4 hours quilting him...so a total of 11 hours. Of course there were some breaks in there for answering the phone, fixing mistakes, cleaning out the machine, changing threads over and over but over all....pretty accurate. Yes...the next one will go much faster just because I will not need to do as many fabric selections, thread selections, or make the mistakes that I did on this one, but it give you an idea at least. All in all....I am happy with No. 1.
